About Shepherds Bush
Shepherd’s Bush (also Shepherds Bush) is a district of west London in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, situated 4.9 miles (7.9 km) west of Charing Cross and located in postal district W12. Although it is primarily residential in character, its focus is the shopping area of Shepherds Bush Green, which has a small shopping centre with a supermarket, cinema and gym, and a large number of small and mostly independent shops. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Shepherds Bush area.
It is bordered by Hammersmith to the south/south-west, West Kensington to the South, Holland Park (and then Notting Hill) to the east, Willesden and Harlesden to the north and by Acton and Chiswick to the west. The area’s focal point is Shepherds Bush Green (or Shepherds Bush Common), an 8 acre (approx) triangular area of open grass surrounded by trees and roads with shops, and containing two tennis courts at its northwestern apex.
The Green is a hub on the local road network, with four main roads radiating from the western side of the green and three roads approaching its eastern apex, meeting at the large Holland Park Roundabout. This position makes it an important node of the bus network, with thirteen bus routes arriving there. It is also served by three London Underground stations (see Transport below).
To the east, Shepherds Bush is bounded by the physical barrier to movement of the West London railway line and the grade-separated West Cross Route (part of the aborted 1960s London Motorway Box scheme); the Holland Park Roundabout and the small Addison Bridge to the south are the only ways to cross this barrier from Shepherds Bush.
Most of the areas to the east of the barrier differ significantly in character, being associated with the more affluent Holland Park and Notting Hill – although the Edward Woods Estate just to the northeast of the roundabout is part of and managed by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and is therefore more closely associated with Shepherds Bush
Commercial activity in Shepherds Bush is focused on the West 12 shopping centre opposite Shepherds Bush Central line station and on the many small shops which run along the northern side of the Green. Originally built in the 1970s with a rooftop car park and connecting bridge to the station, the shopping centre was significantly redeveloped in the 1990s. The bridge was removed, and the centre now houses several chain stores, a 12-screen cinema, gym, pub, restaurants and a supermarket.
The small shops continue along Uxbridge Road to the west for some distance, and another set of shops and restaurants line Goldhawk Road from the Green to the southwest. Many of these establishments cater for the local ethnic minority communities (see Demographics).
Running parallel to, and partly under, the Hammersmith and City Line tracks there is a large permanent market, selling groceries, cooked food, clothing and bric-à-brac.
The Westfield Group (with Hausinvest Europa) is building a new shopping centre, bounded by the West Cross Route (A3220, was the M41), the Westway (A40, previously A40(M)), and Wood Lane, A219 (also the old A40). This centre will be branded “Westfield London” and is mainly being constructed on the site of the Franco-British Exhibition (1908) and the 1908 Summer Olympics on land owned by London Underground. However, this area is considered by locals to be part of Shepherds Bush rather than its namesake, White City.
In October 2008, The Westfield shopping centre, Europe’s biggest in-town shopping centre will open in Shepherd Bush, and will be located north of Shepherds Bush Green and east of Wood Lane (opposite the BBC). Read more…
